Please RSVP for this event so we have an accurate picture of people coming for food.
3rd Annual Meet 'n EAT at Blendon Woods Metro Park Sunday June 24th 2012
Back by popular demand we have reserved the same shelter for 2012. We had 45 cars show up for the 2011 event.
We reserved the shelter for the first part of the day so you may arrive anytime after 11:00 AM and we will try and eat between noon and 12:30. We reserved it until 4p.m. This shelter has electricity and restrooms as well as swings, a sand volley ball court, and disc golf putting practice. We'll be supplying hot dogs, brats, buns, condiments, paper plates and plastic ware and ask that the rest bring a dish to share (if you'd like) as well as what you'd like to drink. As an FYI, no alcohol is permitted in the park. If you cannot or don't want to come for the food, come anytime you can and just hang out. Bring your camera and lawn chairs as well if you'd like. There are picnic tables however. Also, the Park Rangers are very particular about going the posted speed limit in the Park. So please, follow the posted speed limits so we are welcome to come back here next year. We will have a donation box in the shelter to help cover the costs of this event.​

​ This year we are going to try and have 'like' cars park together so we can take group pictures of the same models parked in a line. So, when you show up try and park near other cars like yours if possible.

​Also, two new things we are going to try this year, as suggested by members.

1.) We will be collecting new, medium to small toys for the fall Channel 4 Firefighters for Kids program. If you would like to participate, simply bring a new, unwrapped, kids toy to the shelter and we will collect them all and save them till the end of the year. Then, our car club will caravan down to the Channel 4 studio and drop off the toys.

2.) Swap Meet. If you bought something for your car and decided you just don't want to put it on your ride and it is just sitting in your garage, bring it (Provided it is not large. If it is, simply take pictures and bring those). We will have a table setup for this.

For those of you not familiar with this park:

4265 E.Dublin-Granville Road,Westerville, OH 43081 (northeastern Franklin County)
From I-270, take State Route 161 exit (30B) toward New Albany onto E. Dublin-Granville Road. Go 1.6 miles then take the Little Turtle Way exit and turn right. Go to Old State Route 161 and turn right. Entrance is 1/2 mile on left. Once you enter the park you will eventually come upon a fork in the road, take the left and look for Hickory Grove Shelter. It is the last public shelter on the road.
